10Super Stickman Golf 3

  • Publishing company: Noodlecake Games

Okay, so Super Stickman Golf 3 is closer to crazy golf than proper golf. But is there a better game to put a ball in a hole on the App Store? Probably not.

A brilliant retro-tinged golf game that eschews tiresome realism without sacrificing depth.

The Best Weapons in V Rising: A Guide to All Weapons and…

Playing a game of baseball with a dice roll might seem like the driest, most boring game of all time, but Bottom of the 9th is nothing like that, thanks to a simplified ruleset and charming presentation.

14 | Skate City

  • Editor: Snowman
  • Available in: iOS + Apple Arcade
  • Genre: Sports

A relaxed skating simulator with a side perspective and lots of tricks and jumps to perform with a simple slide control system. Being an Apple Arcade game, it's as skillful as anything.

15 | What the Golf?

  • Available in: iOS + Apple Arcade
  • Genre: Sports

What The Golf is a golf game in the broadest sense of the word. Or maybe it's the ultimate golf game. After all, this is a game where the identity of the ball, club and hole differs drastically from one hole to the next.

16 | Dinkigolf

  • Available in: iOS + Android
  • Genre: Sports

Can we make another crazy casual golf game on mobile? When it's as good as Dinkigolf, you better believe we can. Featuring a pleasantly wacky edge and sprawling, twisting levels, it's a lot of fun.

17 | Sonic at the Olympic Games – Tokyo 2020

  • Available in: iOS + Android
  • Genre: Sports

Never mind the fact that it was made for an Olympics that never happened (thanks COVID) – Sonic at the Olympics is a nice collection of sports minigames.

18Motorball

  • Available in: iOS + Android
  • Genre: Multiplayer, Sports

Essentially Rocket League on your phone, Motorball switches to a simple top-down perspective and scales things back to stronger, condensed 1v1 matchups.

19 | Clap Hanz Golf

  • Available in: iOS + Apple Arcade
  • Genre: Sports

For all intents and purposes, Clap Hanz Golf is the legendary Everybody's Golf series that has come to iOS. This isn't a lazy door or an incomplete mobile spinoff, but rather a complete 3D golf game with a rethought touchscreen control system.

20 | Skiing Yeti Mountain

  • Editor: Featherweight Games
  • Available in: iOS + Android
  • Genre: arcade, sports

This deeply wacky casual game somehow gets the rhythm and dynamics of downhill skiing right with a simple tap and slide control system.

21 | Plow Soccer

  • Editor: Batovi Games Studio
  • Available in: iOS + Apple Arcade
  • Genre: Sports

This Apple Arcade effort comes from the Pixel Cup Soccer brands, and while it doesn't have the same pixel art charm, its 3D arcade action is hard to resist.

22 | Touchdowners

  • Editor: Colin Lane
  • Available in: iOS
  • Genre: Casual

Another Colin Lane gem. Like Wrassling and Dunkers, Touchdowners only superficially resemble their host sport, but trying to get the ball into the end zone is a crazy treat nonetheless.

23 | Flick Kick Football

  • Developer: PikPok
  • Available in: iOS + Android
  • Genre: Sports

The original and, we suggest, still the best glitter ball on the App Store. PikPok's swipe-to-kick mechanic is flawless, and the growing challenge of the core game never gets old.

24 tennis champions

  • Available in: iOS
  • Genre: Sports

Returning to a time when simplistic 16-bit graphics disguised sports games of deceptive depth, Tennis Champs: Returns is much more complicated and involves a tennis simulator than it initially appears.

25 | NBA 2K21 Arcade Edition

  • Available in: iOS + Apple Arcade
  • Genre: Sports

This Apple Arcade-exclusive version of the best-selling basketball game features top-notch visuals, the latest NBA roster for the 2020-2021 season, online multiplayer, and enhanced controller support. It is the best mobile basketball game.
